Wink - not charging

Postby raygeeknyc » Mon Feb 01, 2016 4:17 am

Hi
I've gotten my Wink out and went to charge it - it took me a few minutes to determine that, unlike Ringo, there's no direct charging port on the Wink and I have to use the programmer to charge Wink :?:

But... when I connect Wink to the programmer, there's no charging LED lighting up anywhere :cry:

I believe that the cables and such are all OK as I switched the cable to Ringo who's charging LED came on right away.

Is there a chance that I'm missing something or is my Wink defective?

Was I missing the fact that the LED only comes on while Wink needs to charge? I ran it for a few mins and then tried again and the LED is now on.

Correct, Ringo and Wink will start charging their batteries once they are connected to power. The red charging light comes on while its charging and goes off when its battery is full.
